Dana White Rips Into Matt Mitrione For Turning Down Daniel Cormier Fight

UFC president Dana White makes sure to let everyone know how he feels. And by the response White recently gave to concerning Matt Mitrione, you can only imagine what the brash boss said to Mitrione in person.

White confirmed that Mitrione (5-1) turned down a fight with Daniel Cormier in November. Zuffa is still searching for an opponent for Cormier (10-0) on the Strikeforce card after an injury knocked Frank Mir out.

It (expletive) makes me sick. Listen, you don’t want big opportunities, I hear you. I get it then. All I can say is, I guess he doesn’t want big opportunities. It makes no sense to me and it’s insane. I’m a little bummed out by it; we’ll figure it out.

Mitrione recently challenged Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, but White said that fight will not happen. “Meathead” is slated to return to action in December against Phil De Fries.
